Information on the 200 Character Challenge is here- [link]If you didn't see, the Anne comic submitted back in September has been expanded with an extra five panels. You can see it here - [link] .
here, handling submission. Adam's comments will come in a bit, but for now, here are my comments, and why don't you go ahead and take a look at the extended version of the Anne comic while at it?Martin's Comments:
Two for one here, as we go for a double-shot of Teen Titans. Cartoon version, though either way, guess it's appropriate timing to post this as the last of January given Linkara's devoting the month to a Teen Titans retrospective. Which. . . yeah, nothing against the team, but I'm probably skipping that. I really don't have much interest in hearing him dish out praise.
Anyway, here's Terra, along with Beast Boy putting in a guest appearance. Thing we had other ideas for Terra, but not sure what they might have been; I can vaguely recall something involving her heel turn, but that's about it. Think there might've been something with the end of the series when Beast Boy finds her seemingly with amnesia.
This is the 99th one in the challenge, incidentally, meaning that we're just about to wrap up the first half. Y'know, occurs to me we probably could've used something like this for Toph and instead gone with one of those for Terra, but hindsight and all of that. Plus Toph's pic was one of the most popular ones so no need to go regretting it, right? Adam's Comments:
Yeah, I actually like Toph's picture a good deal more than this anyway, so I'd say we made the right call there. ^^ Fit her much better.
Actually, this is around the time I stopped stupidly deleting the other options for characters we typed down beforehand, so we actually still have the alternate ideas for her recorded. There was an idea for a diapered amnesmatic Terra on file, but other idea was her throwing a tantrum in the sandbox and making rocks and sand fly up ominously as Slade looks on with an "Oh, Crap" expression.
That probably would've been way more interesting, but the problem was that this was done in a Stream. .... Yeah, when I do pictures in a stream and have all those eyes watching me, I feel sorta pressured and rushed, so sometimes I'll take the easier of ideas or pass over harder characters.
Still, did like getting to slip in Beast Boy there. I love working in characters who aren't really on the list like that.
